jQuery - Target a Specific Child of an Element Using jQuery

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
On the Target a Specific Child of an Element Using jQuery challenge. It shows on the challenge that you put $(“.target:nth-child(n)”).addClass(“animated bounce”);.
I know I am new to coding so I don’t want to overstep but is there a mistake in this challenges example code? I couldn’t make it work until I researched it and found a Stack post that said to use a space between target and nth. Like this $(“.target :nth-child(n)”). Do I have this right or was the example set up that way with the intention of having students look up the answer? I wasn’t sure so I thought Id ask.
Your code so far

$(document).ready(function() {
  $("#target1").css("color", "red");
  $("#target1").prop("disabled", true);
  $("#target1").parent().css("background-color", "red");
  $("#right-well").children().css("color", "orange");

I should include that on the freeCodeCamp editor and as far as the challenge goes on the site, it worked. I tried it on my end in my Sublime code editor and could not get it to work without the space. Any ideas on all this?
